One of the greatest benefits of Ayurveda and other holistic forms of medicine is that it allows for individualizing treatments and improving the whole body a little at a time, all of the time. It is a lifestyle as much as a complementary and alternative medicine, so within reason and depending on health needs, it is practical for every day. Even from its start, Ayurveda was believed to be effective for psychiatry, sexual energy, surgery and internal medicine. If health is waning or emotional stress and the blues have set in, diet, physical activity and connectivity to things spiritual -- in whatever religious tradition you adhere to -- can be "applied" to correct the imbalance and promote harmony. A lot of the work of even the most traditional physician's treatments involves getting rid of junk that makes our bodies sick, and Ayurveda complements that basic approach to healing by helping us de-junk and de-clutter the mind and spirit while taking care of our bodies.
The year of 2016 was not easy for many people, so why not start 2017 with the right foot learning about new healthy habits and becoming able to insert them in our daily lives?


Here are 7 ways on how Ayurvedic medicine can help you take better care of yourself this year.

1 – Stimulation of Internal Organs through massages


How many therapies have you heard of that are able to improve the way your organs work? In Ayurveda, even though the massages are performed externally, they are known to stimulate the internal organs in the body. This leads to removal of toxins and waste material in the body through the improvement of the circulation in both blood and lymphatic systems.


2 – Improve your Sleep cycles

During an Ayurveda retreat, you also will go through massage therapies that relax the muscles and nerves of the body. This creates mental calmness and reduces stress leading to satisfactory sleep. In addition, the food prepared in these retreats are specially crafted to fill our body needs, which includes a good night of sleep.

3- Increase your levels of stamina

The Ayurvedic massages promoted during retreats can help you regain the vitality and stamina that is affected due to stress and tensions of modern lifestyle. The inclusion of specific herbs in the daily meals also contributes to the body stamina recovery through these genuine natural remedies. These herbs increase the energy levels in the body in a healthy way and naturally make the person improve their vitality, immunity, strength, resilience and endurance.

4 – Improving your immune system

In traditional Ayurvedic medicine, a multitude of herbs, vitamins and minerals are combined in the daily diet to prevent and combat immune disorders. These mixes help strengthen the body's defenses and keep the appetite strong so illness has a reduced chance of settling in. Treatments for immunity are mixed depending on the condition or imbalance, but some general ayurvedic tonics can contribute to disease resistance when taken by healthy individuals.


5 – Reduce Stress and Anxiety

There are many proven links between poor physical health and high-stress levels, and Ayurvedic texts going back thousands of years recognized how "worry" can be harmful to the body and spirit. Treatments for reducing or relieving stress include the ayurvedic tonics, yoga, massages and other activities mentioned for physical well-being, but an added emphasis for balancing mood and mental activity can include getting more deeply in tune with the spiritual and tipping the scales back down from the material world.

6 – Helps with weight loss or maintenance

While fast weight loss isn’t necessarily the primary goal, Ayurvedic retreats can aid participants shed excess weight naturally using a healthy diet, stress reduction and even essential oils for weight loss. The weight loss is likely because Ayurveda promotes compliance and believes that a diet should be balanced, practical and easy to follow. Great knowledge on quality food to start the year with new habits for your body.
